Missionaries we support:
Project Hope, Uganda Africa: Pouring hope into the lives of those in need
Andy and Camie minister in Calo Me Lare, at the Village of Redemption. As of January 2012 they have 47 children at the Village of Redemption.
The purpose of Calo Me Lare is to care for and provide hope for orphans in Lira who have been most impacted by the AIDS epidemic and 23 years of war with the rebel forces of Northern Uganda. Our goal is to provide a nurturing home, a quality education, sufficient medical care, an effective character-based mentoring program and an on-going community that will empower them to establish themselves in a career and to serve as leaders in their communities and country. The village will consist of “2 circles” with each circle comprising of 8 homes. Each home will be a family unit of 8 children and a house mother who is a widow from the community. In addition to attending school, the children will be mentored in financial management, vocational training, farming and agriculture, and character development.
Who we are: Andy is a 22 year veteran of the construction trades, having owned his own cabinet making company in Bend, Oregon for the past 15 years. He loves the outdoors and is an avid mountain biker, hiker, backpacker and camper. He’s suited to the earthy roughness of life in the bush.
Cami has been Andy’s wife and partner in business for 25 years. She studied psychology in college and has worked in the mental health field as well as in carpentry, and served as the benevolence coordinator for several years in their church, helping those in need.

Good Samaritan Ministries: Northern Congo – Goma Region:
Timothee Kalonda Wa Mayombo is the Regional Director in Goma.
Sharing Relentless, Unconditional Love Around the World
Good Samaritan Ministries provides counseling, mentoring, process groups and a variety of classes that are relevant to the everyday life situations of people in communities around the world as well as providing training for teachers and leaders. Our enthusiasm for the work intensifies as GSM staff and volunteers consider all that we are able to offer to hurting people through lay counseling (and some professional counseling). GSM provides opportunities for those we serve which go well beyond what professional counseling alone is designed to do. GSM aims to guide people to discover their life purposes; to build lifelong relationships; to make disciples; and to teach them to “go and do likewise”.
